UPDATE (December 11, 2019): Christie’s recent Supreme-packed auction Handbags x Hype has ended, seeing 89% of its lots considerably surpassing their estimates. Notable sales included the Supreme x Louis Vuitton Malle Courrier 90 trunk, a piece that was originally estimated to sell for up to $60,000 USD, but eventually hit the hammer at $125,000 USD.

Elsewhere, a two-piece set of signed KAWS Chum Skateboards expected to flog between $7000 USD and $9000 USD finally sold for over three times estimate at $32,500 USD, while a singular Supreme x Louis Vuitton skateboard expected to fetch up to $7000 USD sold for a total of $30,000 USD.

Other notable sales include the super-rare Hermès Matte White Himalayan Niloticus Crocodile Birkin 30 featuring Palladium Hardware, which exceeded its $40,000-$60,000 USD expectation with a final sale of $125,000 USD. To see the final prices of each item — which equated to a total of $2.1M USD — head over to the Christie’s site.


ORIGINAL STORY (November 19, 2019): It’s no surprise that few brands drive resale markets quite like Supreme, a conceit quantified in books like Drop and blockbuster auctions co-signed by industry authorities and houses like Sotheby’s. Appropriately, the author of Drop, Byron Hawes, has been tapped to lend his knowledge to a new Supreme auction, comprising over 100 lots encompassing some of the label’s most desirable skate decks and accessories.

Christie’s is hosting the sale, which includes a vast array of in-demand vintage goods sourced from all eras of Supreme’s storied history. A rich assortment of accessories are all on hand, drawing from all eras of Supreme’s legacy. Key items include the Everlast boxing goods, Stern pinball machine, Fender Stratocaster, Spalding basketball, original Supreme magazines and, of course, a limited edition monogram Malle Courrier 90 trunk from the Louis Vuitton collaboration (estimated to bring in up to $60,000 USD). There are plenty of smaller lots available, however, including groups of Supreme ashtrays and a selection of Supreme’s collaborative hardware, including the bolt cutters, hand axe, toolbox and infamous brick.

Sought-after artist skateboards are also here, accompanying the covetable accessories. These include items designed by Harmony Korine, Richard Prince, Damien Hirst, KAWS, Andrei Molodkin, Takashi Murakami, George Condo, Raymond Pettibon and more. Accompanying the artist collaborations are an array of rare skateboards that include original “Copyright” decks from 1998, 2011’s “Snow White” boards and a full set of the boards that won a cease & desist from Louis Vuitton in 2000, plus the official collaborative deck that dropped in 2017 (estimated to bring in up to $7,000 USD).

Visit the Christie’s website to scan the entire Supreme sale and prepare to start bidding on November 26. The auction ends on December 10.

Most recently, Supreme rejoined Phaidon for another commemorative hardcover book.
